Hello from Charleston, SC
I've been on and off this site for a while and find everyone so helpful with great recipes. I've been baking for a while but in spurts so I consider myself a new bread baker. Recently I bought a clay cloche from King Arthur and have been playing with that a bit. I've been using a no knead bread receipe, weighing the dough, using about a pound at a time. It seems not to rise much before I bake it and the loaves seem kind of small. I wonder if I'm handing the dough too much. Other than that, the bread tastes good and has a nice crust which what I was after. I've made other breads with varying success.
Are there any other bread recipes that would lend itself to the cloche? Hopefully, I didn't buy a one trick pony but I do like it and probably could use it as a stone, I guess.
